By

Citrix's XenMobile enterprise mobility management (EMM) now supports Android devices.

The Android for Work ecosystem that provides separation of personal and business data has been extended by the announcement that Citrix's XenMobile now supports Android for Work.

According to Citrix, "XenMobile is unique in its ability to offer consistent security and policies across all mobile device platforms, including its support for FIPS 140-2 encryption and compliance standards."

This new capability supplements existing Citrix support for Samsung Knox.

Citrix group vice president and general manager of the mobile platforms group Brian Dye said "With complementary visions and strategies, Citrix and Google are collaborating on a number of initiatives in mobility, app virtualization and cloud to deliver a comprehensive best in class secure mobile workspace solution that offers customers the most seamless, business-ready experience on Android and Chrome devices over any network."

Citrix also offers XenApp and Receiver for Chrome, allowing the use of company controlled Windows, Web and SaaS apps and data on Chromebooks.

For developers, XenMobile's secure container is accessible via the Worx SDK.

In related news, EMM vendor MobileIron announced that Android for Work will be supported by MobileIron Cloud.
